Cannot change colour of unvisited links Firefox 70

Posted

Hi. I am registered visualy impaired and find the unvisited links hard to see in the blue colour. I used to have them as yellow, but since downloading Firefox version 70, it has reverted back to the blue colour, although being selected as yellow in the options. My friend has tried it, and has the same problem !!

Firefox 70.0.1 broke the Visited and Unvisited Link Colors for "Always" or "Only with High Contrast Themes" settings. Reverting to 69.0.3 FIXES the problem, using all my same add-ons and themes. 70.0.1 always forces light green visited link colors and dark blue unvisited colors, which is rather counter intuitive for green being "new, unvisited" sites. I use green for GO and rusty red for STOP (or already visited) sites, and have for decades. There is no theme add-on that will fix this, it is a bug in the new code and cannot be changed any longer. There is no way to ALWAYS change visited and unvisited link colors in any version past 70.0.1, thus I force 69.0.3 as my final working version. Otherwise, the best browser out there and always has been!
